Film review: 'Crazy Rich Asians'

Film review: 'Crazy Rich Asians'

Told with plenty of heart, humor, and style,"Crazy Rich Asians" offers a glamorous romantic fantasy that's as universally crowd-pleasing as they come.


Film review: 'Christopher Robin'

The film's lesson is that Christopher is neglecting the truly important things like family, and needs to recapture the joy of his childhood. But pop culture encouraging grown men to cling to the things they loved as children hasn't exactly worked out too well for the world lately.

Film review: 'The Spy Who Dumped Me'

As the espionage action begins to overpower the comedy, the film's violence turns shockingly brutal at times, leading some of those laughs to catch in the throat. The film can be uneven in laughs and thrills, but when Kate McKinnon's on screen that's almost good enough.

Film review: 'Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot'

Gus Van Sant's new film successfully side-steps cliché in its details, but feels like yet another story about the healing power of art and the necessity of humor in the face of suffering.

Review: 'Mama Mia! Here We Go Again'

Sweet, sunny, and very silly, it's a movie that unquestionably has no real reason to exist. But since it does, this is just about the best possible version we could have hoped for.

Film review: 'Sorry to Bother You'

“Sorry to Bother You” is an outrageous, wholly original, and dementedly weird feature directorial debut from hip-hop artist and activist Boots Riley. With a swaggering, anti-establishment, punk rock attitude, and fueled by a righteous anger, Riley’s film is an excoriation of late-stage capitalism and greed that plays like a fever dream.
